No offence to the guy but he is just not a public speaker. He can rattle off the same old stories in an interview but put on the spot he struggles. (not unlike Trump actually)

And now Mike is trending on twitter   LOL

I'm reading he spoke about Trump trying to save Whitney Houstons life or something

Reading a few news stories it seems possible however there were probably dozens of others trying to do the same. Everyone knew she was in bad shape and hoped she would get her life sorted. Tragically it was not to be.

Carl singing the lead from that 96 tour your post referred to Stephen. Privileged to say I heard him sing it live several times. Along with GOKs, a highlight of any Beach Boys concert.

So for those that know. What’s the legalities of Music plagiarism and this song?


Shortenin' Bread is a traditional song in the public domain.


Thanks CM. So in that case I assume the lyric is able to be changed as well.

Al Talks about his ‘Postcards’ tour and title track...

The album’s title track includes a guest vocal by Glen Campbell, who played guitar on Beach Boys sessions in the ‘60s as a member of the Wrecking Crew. It’s become a signature song for Jardine, both for its breezy California sound and its autobiographical lyric.

“I love folk music, Glen Campbell, Jimmy Webb and all those influences came together with The Beach Boys’ kind of harmonies,” Jardine said. “It has that quintessential authentic Western sound. I think we’re gonna release a live version of it from one of these concerts and do a video for it as well as a promotion for the vinyl release on Record Store Day in November.”

Great timing as usual. Official lyric video for ‘Wouldn’t It Be Nice’, for an album released months ago.

There was a point when the ‘Unpopular Beach Boys Opinion’ thread would have been more appropriate discussing the Blondie/ Carl SOS vocal debate IMO.

From a heads-up on the PSForum. Brian in the studio over the weekend. Related?

11  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Does Brian Wilson Play Guitar? on: September 30, 2018, 04:19:58 PM
I realize this is probably a stupid question, but I've just noticed that I've never heard of Brian playing guitar on a session or live at a concert. I know that he pretty much picked up the bass as "his" touring instrument, but did he ever learn guitar?

COMMENT to John Brode:  Brian Wilson is proficient at playing any keyboard instrument, any 12-string guitar, 6-string guitar, bass guitar and you would be amazed at how good he is playing the drums too.

He prefers to play the keyboard because he relates to music as harmony as well as melody. Harmony is best expressed by the polyphonic keyboard.

And THIS is why we come here. Thanks SWD!

Oh I think they are real. It’s just he has more issues going on and is handling none of them well. Just my unqualified opinion.

Good point about the 1% GF. It’s comparable to saying ‘I’m not going to a B.B./BW show because I know they will play ‘Barbara Ann’.  LOL

Looking back through some threads and it was apparently for Spotify according to a band members FB account. Nothing was ever confirmed or announced I believe.

Unbelievable use of the song Pacific Ocean Blues in Season 2 of Goliath!  Can't find it right now, but pretty sure it's on YouTube

Season 2 episode 2 for those with Amazon Prime

Oh that’s pretty easy IMO. There has been so much filmed and documented over the years except the time Murry and Audree went away. I’m picturing the guys with the run of the house deciding to rent instruments and write and sing ‘Surfin’, then presenting it to the folks on their return.

I don’t think anyone’s commented on the series ‘Goliath’ where Chez Jay is the hangout for the lawyer Billy Bob Thornton plays. I’ve only watched the first episode but it’s a main setting for the character.

A few Brian/ Mike mentions in the comments section from some ex employees.
22  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: I just wanna know......... on: September 06, 2018, 09:54:19 PM
Reports say he read it but shooting the scenes were down for the end of September. So that’s a no.
23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Dennis’s Women on: September 03, 2018, 02:32:08 AM
If the question is ‘well known’ women you have to include Manson’s girls.  Evil
24  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: I just wanna know......... on: September 02, 2018, 04:20:59 PM
Whoa! First i've heard of it.

Google took me to this article from March. New Zealand actor James Trevena-Brown
https://spy.nzherald.co.nz/spy-news/kiwi-actor-to-star-as-beach-boy/

"Hunky New Zealand actor James Trevena-Brown  built on his success in the Auckland-filmed The Shannara Chronicles and moved to Hollywood to chase his dreams in 2016. Now his surfer-boy looks have landed him a role playing one of the legendary Beach Boys in the upcoming Charles Manson biopic, Charlie Says.

Trevena-Brown, 31, is set to play Beach Boy Dennis Wilson..."


Looks like some confusion. JTB plays Dennis in another biopic being released this year. ‘Charlie Says’

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1759744/fullcredits?ref_=tt_cl_sm#cast


https://www.telegraph.co.uk/films/2018/09/02/charlie-says-review-matt-smith-miscast-charles-manson-innovative/

The men on the camp’s fringes prove more interesting, particularly Beach Boys drummer Dennis Wilson (James Trevena-Brown), shown happily indulging in the free love made available to him at the ranch – by Manson decree, of course – without troubling himself as to why the girls might be offering it. As for the murders themselves, they occur largely off-camera, although Leslie’s involvement is shown graphically, and has a nasty, self-destructive charge which you can’t help but wish the rest of Charlie Says had more thoroughly unpicked.

The wiki page for next years QT movie doesn’t mention a Dennis Wilson character.

Edit: So the movie ‘Charlie Says’ is for TV and the actor playing Manson is Matt Smith from The Crown. He is 6 feet tall and Charles Manson was 5 2. Doesn’t bode well does it?
25  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: What would have been a fair price for Sea of Tunes? on: September 02, 2018, 03:53:21 PM
Did Murry actually shop it around or was that 700k the only offer? If it was the highest bid then technically that is ‘all it was worth’ at the time. As you say, who knew about the long turn prospects back then? The L&M movie showed Brian being upset about the value. Was that just movie making license or did he truely sense what the future prospects were. Who knows?
I guess the music business is full of these decisions that seem stupid in hindsight. The guy that turned down the Beatles always springs to mind. Artists locked into contracts that paid ok then they went big time, like the Stones. Artists paid a fortune then didn’t deliver. REM signed a reported $80m deal then there next album sold poorly.

It’s a Business with a capital B.
